  1. I’ve seen Miss Austen Regrets and was left a little cold by the portrayal. Not that I’m a keeper of Austen’s flame by any means, but her sister, Cassandra, destroyed at Austen’s death much of their correspondence. I have the feeling that proof of the real Jane Austen, and any of her regrets, may have gone up the chimney. (Though, enough of her personal writing remains for us to know she was very much many of her characters. Good and bad.)
